  • Hi max tech. I went from iPhone 4 to iPhone 8+ with 256 gigs of storage which I love. Usually using it for pics and video.I’m currently typing and using it. Not sure which one to use. I have big hands but I didn’t mind the the 4 at the time of Usage. Wish I could show you a pic of it so you could see how long I had it bro. It was falling apart but still working lol. I’ll send it to your IG page. Not sure which to buy

  • I'm going for the 12. The pro ones are too expensive, and the mini is too small. The 6 was tiny, I can't imagine using a smaller smartphone.

  • Maaaaan listen when the XS Max first came out I hurry up and got it. Till this day this bad boy is still going strong. I have not had any problems with it yet. I plan on updating in 2024......... that is if Apple don't screw up with my phone on purpose to force me to get a new one LOL. It makes no sense spending thousands of $ on a damn phone EVERY year when your old phone is still doing what it's suppose to do. Save your coins people !! This is no time to be spending money....... ESPECIALLY if you one of the millions of Americans who lost their job during this shenanigan. If you got the money like that then have fun and enjoy your new phone.

  • Mistake Nr. 0 Considering an IPhone 12 lineup as your only upgrade option to have your hands on the latest 5G . 5G will be a standard soon enough and if you will go Apple this time you are getting yourself into a even bigger money pit where sponsored reviewers praise the new IPhone and their “Must have cases” Quick maths £999 base model Plus a magnetic case + a MacSafe fancy charger + a normal charger if you didn’t have an IPhone 11 lineup before because 5W bricks won’t do justice on the new IPhone 12s

  • Of all the videos this has been one of the most informative. One question I have that no one has answered not even apple. Is what is the safe space screen size on the iPhone 12 lineup basically I still love my iPhone 8 Plus. Have 256GB with bare 64GB free, I know with the 12 will be gone since with better camera bigger pictures. But I also read a lot of emails and PDF’s and watch a lot of videos so for me is what is the size of the “Safe Space” Area this is the no notched noon rounded corners.

  • I don’t understand how you can say the iPhone 12 will be the star of the show then to follow that up with the 12 pro only has 8 advantages. I get the pricing but the 8 advantages for 120 more is why the 12 pro is better, I get a third camera better screen brightness on the regular. Along with everything else you said.

  • I’m still trying to decide between 12 and 12Pro, most of my doubts are about the steel and the ram. Since I’m the kind of user that changes her phone only when is about to die, I tend to keep the same phone for at least 5 or 6 years, so maybe to have a bigger ram is the better choice (I actually have an iPhone 6 😅) since apps keeps getting heavier and maybe in 5 years 4Gb of Ram wouldn’t be enough to have a stable iPhone. About the steel I honestly can’t figure out if it is just a finish choice or if is more resistant than the alluminium one. I’d love to hear your opinion on that. Silvia

  • Okay. Love the video, but let me offer a point of rebuttal on Mistake #11. With Verizon, they lock the phone the moment you activate it for "fraud and security reasons" for the first 90 days. This TOTALLY screwed me as I had AT&T on my eSim and Verizon on the regular sim. So when I upgraded from XS Max to 11 Pro Max, I couldn't use my AT&T service for 90 days - no exceptions from Verizon. They wouldn't even move my verizon iphone to the esim so I could use the unlocked sim slot for at&T. If the phone was unlocked and sim free out the box, I could activate my iphone 12 on the esim with verizon and pop in an at&t sim for my secondary service which this time will prob be T-Mobile. Just a word to the wise as I had hell last time around. Another word to the wise, with regards to iphones get applecare+ with theft and accidental on your iphone. If you ever have a claim with the insurance company, Assurion, they will REFUSE to unlock your phone FOREVER. At least if you use apple care they will replace your phone with another UNLOCKED phone to avoid the issue above happening all over again. FYI.
